Hello all, i'm from french forum "Cenacle".
Some guys from edge told us in our forum, their point of view about this restricted issue, and that make sense for me.
I don't have all the clues about this, but according to informations they gave to us, this is the current objective i understood :
"Make a french championship to select the best french player and send him into the next world tournament to be our challenger."
So the winner won't payed anything to access to this world tournament (all the travel and charges will be payed by Edge).
In fact if another country will make a tournament and if i'll win it … i just can't be a good representative for this country in a world tournament.
i probably don't care of this country because it's not mine !
What about an American player win a Japan Championship and if he 's sent as "Japan representative" in a world tournament : that don't make sense for me.
According to the fact we need to select Champions players as representatives of us in a world tournament, I'm thinking the good way should be to make european events for north, south, est and west european countries: this way all europeans players could be the "Champion" of his aera.
Now, the fact is all players want to challenge foreigner, because we'll learn a lot this way, but this isn't the objective of the current french championship as I said.
We need another kind of tournament like a league to challenge each other without restriction.
Sorry for my bad english, I hope most of you will understand this isn't just a nationality problem
It should be great if Edge could explain clearly his objectives in this topic
